Reading Time: 6 minutes Veeam Backup & Replication does not have a native integration with “entry-level” NAS appliance, but there are some different options if you want to configure a Veeam repository on a NAS hardware appliance. The most common option is just to use the CIFS/SMB protocol on the NAS appliance and connect the repository as a network share. But for some NAS appliances there is also the possibility to export a LUN with iSCSI and then you can connect it with a software iSCSI initiator to the Veeam Backup Server and use as “local storage”.
